Calculate the absolute value of numbers or equations with the absolute value calculator, ignoring whether it’s a positive or negative number sign. It also provides you with step-by-step calculations of absolute values along with a graphical representation and number lines.

What are Absolute Values?

The absolute value of a number is the distance from that number to zero, Ignoring its sign. This distance represents the size or magnitude of the number.

For Example:

Positive Numbers: The absolute value of 5 is 5, because the distance from 5 to zero is 5, regardless of its positive sign.

Negative Numbers: The absolute value of -3 is also 3, because the distance from -3 to zero is 3, even though it's in the negative direction.

How do I Solve for Absolute Value?

Let’s say, you have the equation: |-8| + |-15|.

Here is how you can solve it step by step:

The absolute value of -8 is 8, as it ignores the negative sign and gives the distance from zero.

Similarly, the absolute value of -15 is 15.

Now, add these values together: 8 + 15 = 23.

How To Use Absolute Value Calculator?

  • Select what you want to calculate the absolute value for (Either Number or Equation)
  • Enter the value in the designated field
  • Click the Calculate button


  • You can have your absolute value answer directly and also the step-by-step procedure to calculate the given answer
  • Moreover, if you need to represent your absolute value on a number line or a graphical plot, the absolute value equations calculator also presents the solution in both manners

Comparison of Positive vs. Negative Absolute Numbers:

Absolute Value Examples
Number (x) Absolute Value (|x|) Example Scenario
Positive Numbers    
5 5 Distance traveled 5 steps forward from zero.
12.8 12.8 Height of a building 12.8 meters above ground.
1/3 1/3 Time remaining on a timer, 1/3 of the way to completion.
Negative Numbers    
-3 3 Temperature 3 degrees below zero.
-7.5 7.5 When zero represents no debt, you're currently 7.5 units away from having a zero balance.
-1/4 1/4 Distance traveled 1/4 of a circle counter-clockwise from zero.
0 0 Starting point on a number line, no distance from zero.
